Help With Spoon Maker Please

These two spoons are about 14.5 cm long. The mark looks like it could be M D or M P or maybe something else. Any help would be very much appreciated. I will try to get a better shot of the makers mark if needed.

Re: Did Shepard Mfg Co purchase rights to some of Julius Walk's desings for BINGHAM & WALK?

The term of the patent you refer to was 3.5 years; so unless it was renewed, patent protection was not in place for long.
